    Ferrari falls off truck at Ernie Boch's dealership

    by Clifford Atiyeh



    As the story of the Toyota recalls changed every few hours yesterday, dealer Ernie Boch was interviewed by nearly every local news station. But in the wake of analysis and predictions, Fox 25 News sent their helicopter to record a chuckle-worthy clip at Boch's Ferrari dealership in Norwood, where one of his F430 Spiders was dangling off a transport truck.

    Sudden accleration in a Ferrari isn't hard to muster, but that wasn't the case as the mid-engined exotic, which bases at $217,310, balanced on its rear end.

    not familiar with that type of lift but if you look at the video I see a piece of it laying below the car. hate to defend a scab. but looks like it might be equipment faliure if the tailgate broke.

    It does appear that part if the lift is laying on the ground under the car.

    Anyway you look at it, the Ferrari is messed up, however, in watching the video at least the wipers and 4 ways still work.

    "We sold the vehicle to a guy in Florida," Boch wrote in an e-mail today. "As they were loading on the truck to deliver it to Florida, it fell off. Their guy didn't secure the emergency brake hard enough....it was totaled!!"

    Demand, however, is still high worldwide. Customers who order a new stallion have to wait nearly two years to get one. So the Florida buyer might be a tad upset.
